The BioMedTec Science Campus Lübeck represents outstanding research on Biomedical Engineering, Biomedicine, and Biotechnology. The triangle of fundamental research at the University of Lübeck (UzL), application oriented research at the University of Applied Science Lübeck (FHL), and clinical research and medical application at the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein is complemented by the Fraunhofer Institute of Marine Biotechnology, the Fraunhofer MEVIS Research Group on Image Registration, the Leibniz Research Centre Borstel, and industrial partners at the Technology Centre Lübeck, all located on the BioMedTec Science Campus.
This alliance will be the host of the BMT 2015, the 49th annual conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering (DGBMT within VDE).
Research and education on medical engineering has been established in Lübeck for decades. The bachelor program on Biomedical Engineering at FHL and the bachelor and master program on Medical Engineering Science at UzL is complemented by a jointly offered international master degree course Biomedical Engineering. Further life-science oriented programs (Medical Computer Sciences, Mathematics in Medicine and Life Sciences, Molecular Life Science, Psychology and Medicine) contribute to the success of the Medical Engineering Science and Biomedical Engineering programs.
Main foci of the conference are imaging technology, image computing, and biophotonics, reflecting the main topics of the Schleswig-Holstein Competence Centre for Technology and Engineering in Medicine (TANDEM).
Physicians, engineers and natural scientists are welcome to conduct an intensive dialogue on the exciting scientific achievements and to discover the best ways for translation from science to practice. Interdisciplinary communication, socializing and brainstorming are long standing traditions of these conferences.
As networking event BMT 2015 also offers the opportunity for building a BioMedTec bridge into the Baltic area.
